About

I’m an artist who works with drawing and documentary, performance and film:

I draw from observation to explore the world and document what I see.

I use animation to tell stories about lived experience, often about bodies from a feminist perspective.

Performance allows me to use drawing as a live and spontaneous response to music and dance.

My films have won multiple awards, and been screened at more than 30 film festivals including Annecy, Krok, Stuttgart & Anima Mundi. Residencies include MuseumsQuartier Vienna and the National Media Museum, Bradford. My work has been exhibited at Paris College of Art, on the Biennale circuit, Venice and at Parasol Unit, London.

Bio

With a background in animated documentary, I’ve worked as a freelance animation director, including commissions for broadcast television and national charities. You can watch commissioned films and collaborative film work on my Vimeo page.

I co-run AnimatedDocumentary.com, with Ellie Land, an online resource featuring films, news and events from the non-fiction animation community.

I work as Artist Development Officer at ‘a space’ arts, providing support to visual artists.

I have worked in education roles, teaching at Central St. Martin’s, Camberwell (both University of the Arts London) Arts University Bournemouth, BAFTA and BBC, among others. For further details of my experience, see LinkedIN.
